Ferenczy, Károly Bécs, 1862 - 1917, Budapest
He originally studied law, then attended the school of economics and finally turned to art upon the advice of his cousin (and later wife, Olga Fialka). He enrolled at the Naples Academy in 1885, and moved to Munich in 1886, where he made the acquaintance of István Csók and Simon Hollósy. He spent two years at the Julian Academy in Paris and then joined the artists colony of Szentendre. He was in Munich again in 1893, as his connection with Hollósy and his circle grew closer, close enough for him to accompany them to Nagybánya in 1896. He became one of the leaders of the colony and a forceful teacher. Following his successful exhibition in Budapest in 1906, he was appointed a teacher to the Pattern Drawing School, and from that point onwards he only spent summers in Nagybánya. He was one of the founders of MIÉNK in 1907.
